WELCOME


Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

Save the dates! Porsche enthusiasts and guests are welcome to join the Shenandoah Region for our 21st annual Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM) on Friday–Sunday, June 2–4, just north of historic Richmond, Virginia. Weekend activities will begin on Friday with a reception with hors d'oeuvres and cool beverages on the pool terrace of our RPM home base, the lovely Wyndham Virginia Crossings Hotel and Conference Center in Glen Allen. On Saturday we'll host a tops-only concours and people's choice car show in the center courtyard and surrounding areas of the Wyndham's Colonial-style campus. Our lunch will be an elegant buffet onsite in The Glen Restaurant. In the afternoon, we'll go out for a fun run/optional gimmick rally on scenic back roads to Patrick Henry's historic home, Scotchtown, for a tour and refreshments. A collectible rally plaque will be included! That evening we'll return to the Wyndham to top off the day with an awards banquet and talk by guest speaker Bill Wade, National Director of Tire Rack Street Survival School for Teens. (Street Survival is a one-day, life-changing defensive driving course for young drivers. Many PCA members donate their time and expertise as in-car coaches and volunteers to support this effort.)
